More safety lights for schools across NSW
May 07, 2012
THE state government has announced an expansion of its schools road safety lights program.
As part of an election pledge, Premier Barry O'Farrell said an extra 160 schools in regional NSW would get the flashing lights which warn motorists to slow down for school zones.
The new lights, to be installed from next month, will cost $4 million, raising the program's cost to $17 million.
"The lights will be installed in country regional school zones where pedestrian risks are highest and where there have been long-standing community concerns about safety," Roads Minister Duncan Gay said.
